hello, everybody, i'm beth troutman, the world still hasn't ended, so let's watch some grate videos, "right this minute"! outside you just see a raging inferno. but a helmet cam shows what firefighters are doing inside. >> when they rip open the holes -- >> you'll see the uphill battle to get this monster under control. a penguin dad does something -- >> researchers have never seen before. >> find out what led up to the video shocker.
1:01pm
>> wait! >> he swallowed the baby. and angry madonna tells the crowd -- >> i'm not doing the show, i'm out. >> what it was that got imagine madge so steamed. plus, a sexy santa pulls a very unsexy prank and a dude who may have forgotten something. >> maybe some pants. >> a sad day for some people going into christmas week. about 30 people were displaced by this fire. shot by a neighbor across the street. this is an apartment complex. some reports say two people were injured. this video is dramatic. take a look at this, shot by firefighter kyle rice. it went into the newark, delaware apartment. venting the ceiling. they're taking a tool and jamming it up through the sheetrock of the ceiling and pulling down the sheetrock. and when they rip open those holes you can clearly see the hot, glowing fire and smoke just
1:02pm
beyond the ceiling. >> what's crazy is that all that stuff that they're pulling on is falling on top of them. >> you know what makes me sad about this video is you said 30 people were displaced. i can just see their pictures on the wall thinking, they're still on the wall, we can go in and grab them. but it's obviously too dangerous for them to do that. >> firefighters will try to recover property. this he tried to save and recover people's stuff. but first and foremost, lives of people and the building itself. >> once they get the holes torn open in the ceiling, they get the hoses in there and try to extinguish the blazes going on inside the wall. >> have they determined what caused the fire? >> they've determined it was accidental. >> such a heartbreaking thing. >> this fire consumed 12 separate apartments. tell me what you think you're seeing. >> penguins, tending to a penguin baby. >> these are penguins in captivity being studied in
1:03pm
china. but this male penguin, the most dominant one on the screen, does something researchers have never seen before. >> is he playing momma? >> what? >> he swallowed the baby. >> he did, he just ate his baby penguin. whole. >> as researchers were watching the cameras, they saw this father penguin trying to feed the baby penguin. the baby wasn't eating so the father started pecking at the baby. and then just pulled it into its beak -- and swallowed it whole. >> a lot of animals in the animal kingdom. the males will eat the babies if they feel they're sick or unhealthy. >> most people agree that this kind of behavior never happens. >> this is really surprising. because a lot of people saw "march of the penguins." and saw the story about how penguins really care for the baby. >> in the penguin world it's the father who rests on the egg until the egg hatches, it's a
1:04pm
huge job for the father and they're very involved in caretaking. >> was the chick alive? >> you do see the chick moving. >> you can see that it's moving. >> you do see it moving. >> they are currently trying to figure out what happened here. what's going on. researchers are still investigating the incident. to find out why the father penguin may have done this. madonna's concerts are pretty spectacular. so you can imagine how excited fans get to see her. well this video is from her tour stop in santiago, chile, during her sound check and that's madonna in a big coat, because it looks like it's raining, she's got an umbrella. as she's in the middle of this rehearsal, she smells smoke and that is a big no-no for madonna. she goes as far as to threaten the crowd. >> if anyone is smoking cigarettes, i'm not doing the
1:05pm
show. i can't stand if you smoke. >> if you're a singer and your voice is important to you. even though i'm sure half the concert is lip-synced or more than half, you know what, people, smoke it. >> some people are with her, supporting her. some people saying she's a diva. she even went as far as in spanish saying -- [ speaking spanish ] >> saying do you understand. >> get real, madonna, you're in a stadium which looks to hold 100,000 people and she wants not a single person to smoke. she's not locked in a phone booth. she's out in the open-air arena. there's not even a roof on this place. >> if you love me, then don't smoke. >> who knows what the smoking laws in chile in a public venue like this are. but it didn't matter to her. >> in the video, the description wrote that she didn't perform the first part of her show. you know they paid a full ticket. >> that's wrong, wrong, wrong.
1:06pm
>> i'm not kidding. these people were on the road and look what happens as the dust storm rolls in. >> here we go. >> ow, that hurt. >> as you notice, the sky gets darker and darker. >> i can't see anything here. >> you can see about five car lengths in front of you. but pretty soon, you can barely see past your hood. >> i can't see hardly anything. >> it's worse than fog. >> they tell you when you're driving in that, you have to be really careful, you got to put our lights on and don't follow eople to a series of chain-reaction accidents because of this dust storm. and one person died in one of those accidents. >> there's a car. >> this is where you want to pull over. you don't know where you're going. you don't know if you're on the right side of the road until another car comes your way. >> i can't see a damn thing. >> it makes you wonder should you pull over and turn on your hazards. because you can't see that. somebody could drift and hit you. >> a couple of rules for driving
1:07pm
in dust storms that they recommend. don't stop, pull o'er to the side of the road and turn off your lights. >> i bet you turn off your lights so people don't follow you. >> i can't see a damn thing. >> an update on the two women -- >> undergoing cavity searches on the side of the road. >> now they are speaking out about the video that has america outraged. >> at that point she told me to shut up and listen. and all is calm until -- whoa! >> what the heck
1:08pm
1:09pm
you guys might remember yesterday we had this video on our show. it's dash cam footage from a state trooper's car in texas. the two women you're seeing, angel and her niece, ashley, undergoing cavity searches on the side of the road.
1:10pm
now the two women are speaking out. >> turns me around, goes down into the front of my pants, into my inner thighs and at which point she comes up, with two fingers and i just look at her and say, oh, my god i've just been violated. >> one of the most disturbing things that these women say, 24-year-old ashley, angel's niece, she describes the experience. >> she actually dug, i didn't know what i could say, what i could do. i felt hopeless. >> you remember this video was released because these women are suing. because of the incident. >> you think? >> their lawyer had something to say. >> we believe that both troopers displayed a reckless and callous disregard for these women's constitutional rights and their safety. >> these women say they don't want this to happen to anyone else. because there is now a legal case pending, trooper kelly
1:11pm
hallison, the woman seen performing the search in the video has been suspended with pay pending the results of this investigation. >> in this hundreds probably thousands of videos we've seen on this show, nothing comes close to this. sun and snowboarding have never mixed better before. check this out. this is dave lee and signal snowboards coming together and partnering with a company called power films solar. the guy is a local snowboarder in mammoth. he's shredding on this brand-new snowboard out there. what makes this such an electrifying run? because the snowboard is solar powered. >> solar board, crushing it. >> what's it powering? >> it can power and charge your cell phone, your ipad, your ipod, whatever you've got with you. they custom-built this snowboard, using this power foam
